NEWARK - Hundreds of students gathered at the Rutgers University Student Center for a meeting that focused on the issue of bullying tonight.

The students listened to testimonies from victims of bullying as part of the meeting organized by Garden State Equality to remember Tyler Clementi.

Police say Clementi committed suicide last month after learning his intimate encounter with another man had been streamed over the Internet.

Clementi's roommate and another Rutgers student have been charged with invasion of privacy.

Organizers along with parents and victims of bullying say that the solution is tougher penalties for violators.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg says he'll push for laws requiring colleges and universities to adopt anti-harrassment policies.

The next meeting will be held on Thursday night in Clementi's hometown of Richwood.
